      • asString

        public static String asString​(Method method,
                                      PlasticProxyFactory proxyFactory)
        Converts a method to a user presentable string using a PlasticProxyFactory to obtain a Location (where possible). asString(Method) is used under the covers, to present a detailed, but not excessive, description of the class, method and parameters.

        short string representation
      • size

        public static int size​(Object[] array)

      • get

        public static <K,​V> V get​(Map<K,​V> map,
                                        K key)
        Gets a value from a map (which may be null).

        K -
        V -
        map - the map to extract from (may be null)
        key -
        the value from the map, or null if the map is null
      • isStatic

        public static boolean isStatic​(Method method)
        Returns true if the method provided is a static method.
      • containsSymbols

        Return true if the input string contains the marker for symbols that must be expanded.
      • lastTerm

        public static String lastTerm​(String input)
        Searches the string for the final period ('.') character and returns everything after that. The input string is generally a fully qualified class name, though tapestry-core also uses this method for the occasional property expression (which is also dot separated). Returns the input string unchanged if it does not contain a period character.
      • findAutobuildConstructor

        public static Constructor findAutobuildConstructor​(Class clazz)
        Searches a class for the "best" constructor, the public constructor with the most parameters. Returns null if there are no public constructors. If there is more than one constructor with the maximum number of parameters, it is not determined which will be returned (don't build a class like that!). In addition, if a constructor is annotated with Inject, it will be used (no check for multiple such constructors is made, only at most a single constructor should have the annotation).
        clazz - to search for a constructor for
        the constructor to be used to instantiate the class, or null if no appropriate constructor was found
      • addToMapList

        public static <K,​V> void addToMapList​(Map<K,​List<V>> map,
                                                    K key,

        Adds a value to a specially organized map where the values are lists of objects. This somewhat simulates a map that allows multiple values for the same key.
        Type Parameters:
        K - the type of key
        V - the type of the list
        map - to store value into
        key - for which a value is added
        value - to add
      • validateMarkerAnnotation

        public static void validateMarkerAnnotation​(Class markerClass)
        Validates that the marker annotation class had a retention policy of runtime.
        markerClass - the marker annotation class
      • toMessage

        public static String toMessage​(Throwable exception)
        Deprecated in 5.4; use ExceptionUtils.toMessage(Throwable) instead.
        Extracts the message from an exception. If the exception's message is null, returns the exceptions class name.
        exception - to extract message from
        message or class name
      • isLocalFile

        public static boolean isLocalFile​(Class clazz)
        Determines if the indicated class is stored as a locally accessible file (and not, typically, as a file inside a JAR). This is related to automatic reloading of services.
      • nextUUID

        public static long nextUUID()
        Generates a unique value for the current execution of the application. This initial UUID value is not easily predictable; subsequent UUIDs are allocated in ascending series.
      • getServiceId

        public static String getServiceId​(AnnotatedElement annotated)
        Extracts the service id from the passed annotated element. First the ServiceId annotation is checked. If present, its value is returned. Otherwise Named annotation is checked. If present, its value is returned. If neither of the annotations is present, null value is returned
        annotated - annotated element to get annotations from
      • sortedKeys

        public static List<StringsortedKeys​(Map map)
        Extracts the string keys from a map and returns them in sorted order. The keys are converted to strings.
        map - the map to extract keys from (may be null)
        the sorted keys, or the empty set if map is null
      • toUserPresentable

        public static String toUserPresentable​(String id)
        Capitalizes the string, and inserts a space before each upper case character (or sequence of upper case characters). Thus "userId" becomes "User Id", etc. Also, converts underscore into space (and capitalizes the following word), thus "user_id" also becomes "User Id".
      • extractIdFromPropertyExpression

        public static String extractIdFromPropertyExpression​(String expression)
        Used to convert a property expression into a key that can be used to locate various resources (Blocks, messages, etc.). Strips out any punctuation characters, leaving just words characters (letters, number and the underscore).
        expression - a property expression
        the expression with punctuation removed
      • defaultLabel

        public static String defaultLabel​(String id,
                                          Messages messages,
                                          String propertyExpression)
        Looks for a label within the messages based on the id. If found, it is used, otherwise the name is converted to a user presentable form.
